TagItalia offers a wide range of solutions for automatic identification and positioning for the transportation industry using TagMaster RFID products. TagMaster delivers accurate information for maintenance and quality control, traffic and passenger information and onboard management systems.

For applications requiring automatic identification or position of a passing train at full line speeds a TagMAster ID Tag is mounted directly on to the wagon or the locomotive and the RFID reader is mounted either on the trackside or on the sleepers.

For applications requiring the precise identity of each passing locomotive, wagon or carriage TagMaster ID Tag is typically mounted directly on to the wagon or the locomotive and the reader is mounted either on the trackside or on the sleepers.

For applications where determining the trains position along the track is requested, the accurate positioning ability of the reader can be used for precise calibration of automatic train control systems for accurate stopping. In this type of application the RFID Reader is usually mounted directly under the train and the ID Tag is fixed on the sleepers. The ID-tag is read as the train passes over it at speed, allowing the reader to automatically update on-board systems with the tag read event. This read event is then used by the onboard system to take certain actions depending on the application.

For applications where tansfer real-time information from track to train or vice versa is requested the TagMaster CableTag can be used. A CableTag is physically connected to the external system via a cable which provides the power and serial interface connections. The interface allows the programmable memory area in the tag to be dynamically updated by the external system. In this way dynamic information on the train can then be passed on to signalling systems for further processing or some data can be passed by the track up to the passing train.
